For medical practitioners

For who?

Speak provides tailor-made Danish language courses for foreign medical practitioners who want authorisation to practise in Denmark or who have already obtained this authorisation but would like Danish language lessons targeted at a specific hospital ward or medical specialism.

What course would you choose?

Danish Language Course for Medical Practitioners at Gentofte Hospital
The course alternates between Danish language lessons, practice sessions at hospital wards and theoretical lessons in medical specialist vocabulary. We organise the teaching to focus equally on general Danish, medical Danish and Danish for communicating with patients. The teaching also includes an introduction to the conditions in Denmark for medical practitioners. Your teachers are Speak’s own teachers, Danish medical practitioners and representatives from the health sector. You will start on module 3.4 or 3.5. (see illustration). The course is full-time and takes place at Gentofte Hospital.

 

Danish Language Course for Medical Practitioners – online
A skype/online course for medical practitioners who need to pass the Danish Language 3 Examination (abbreviated to PD3 in Danish), but who are unable to attend the Danish Language Course for Medical Practitioners at Gentofte Hospital. We organise the teaching to focus on the language needs that you may have in relation to a potential position at a particular ward and to ensure that you achieve the grades required to sit the medical knowledge examinations. You will skype once a week with your teacher. In addition, you have 5 online lessons a week, when you will complete and hand in exercises.

 

Danish Language Course for Medical Practitioners – Danish Language 3 Examination
We provide targeted one-to-one teaching, if you would like to improve your Danish Language 3 Examination result. You will discuss with your teacher the areas that you need to focus on and a tailor-made programme will be made just for you. We also provide this course in an online version. The course is concluded with the Danish Language 3 Examination.
